Default A happy ending

about 2 weeks ago my granparents 1988 Toyota 4Runner SR5 got stollen out of their driveway. It was at night between 11-2. Now let me tell you, my grandpa keeps his cars in MINT condition! It'* fulley loaded and has other mods including running boards, front brush gaurd, WARN winch, tint, and numerous others. Yet thankfully they have 2 other cars, a 1998 GMC Suburban and 1930 Ford Model A (In fulley restored condition and drivable)>

Well, a miracle happend today at 2 am. My grandparents got a call from a Denny'* restraunt in Kent, a city about 1/2 hour away. This is the also the same Dennys my dad passes going to work each day. Well, they were getting ready to tow the Toyota 4Runner that had been sitting there for about a week. They had to use the VIN # to track down my Grandparents because the plates had been switched. When my grandparents went to pick it up it was COVERD in mud. After getting it home they noticed that the front bumper had a small dent, interior reaked of smoked pot, the rear Toyota SR5 V6 emblems were missing, the ash tray and ciggarette lighter were missing, all items that were in the 4Runner including a Tool Box full of tools were missing, and radio was tunned to local rap station. They had get new garage door openers to prevent the car theves to open them with the stolen old garage door openers.

Anyways, i just wanted to post this because my grandparents went through so much to have a good retierment and then these dumbshits have to give them some heartache. Never-the-less my g'pa will be sleeping with the shot gun under the bed now!
